Asked by Shaunta Voran 2 months ago.
I'm not sure exactly what you're asking. Cortef is a corticosteroid, very similar to hydro-cortisone which is commonly used to treat rashes, bug bites, poison ivy, etc. I don't think that taking Cortef will prevent you from exercising or competing in a sport. If you're wondering whether you'll get in trouble like all the MLB players, the answer is no. Cortef is not the kind of steroid that will make your muscles big, your balls small, and your brain angry... However, once you get to the professional level they've got all kinds of crazy rules. For instance, if memory serves, I think the Olympic committee has aspirin listed as a performance enhancing drug... Answered by Audrie Abramowski 2 months ago.
Doctor, what would you prescribe cortef for?
If I said I had adrenal fatigue.. which mainstream doctors don't recognize what other illnesses are most commonly prescribed cortef for? Like I also get asthma like symptoms if I eat certain foods, and I have joint aches, would I be able to get it prescribed for those? thanks
Asked by Barbar Gauger 2 months ago.
Cortef is a steroid (hydrocortisone). There are many conditions which can be treated with steroids however if you don't have a really good reason to be on a steroid then you should not be on one. Steroids have many side effects including hyperglycemia, increased risk of infections, adrenal suppression, poor wound healing, "buffalo hump", skin changes, psychosis and more. If you have an adrenal problem there are tests that can verify that. If you have adrenal insufficiency then you would be prescribed steroids. Asthma can be treated with inhaled steroids only if other medications (beta agonists) don't work. Joint aches can be caused by many things. The only reason to prescribe steroids for joint pain would be if the joint problem was due to an inflammatory process like an autoimmune or rheumatologic condition. You would need tests to diagnose these conditions. No doctor will prescribe steroids without a damn good reason. Answered by Ozella Pittari 2 months ago.
Failing HPA axis, almost devoid of ACTH, Cortef resistant?
My neuropathy is peripheral.
Asked by Scottie Kolopajlo 2 months ago.
I am an adult female. On Cortef, at therapeutic values, my cortisol consistently tests at .9 - 2. (Fasting, 7am.) In 14 years, divided into 3 doses per day, even via injection, there has been no progress. I am now on 40mgs Prednisone; it scarcely registers. The doctours don't know if this is a pituitary, hypothalamus, and/or liver problem. (The adrenals are involved, secondarily.) I have hypothyroid. It has long been stabilized on Synthroid/T4 + Cytomel/T3. (Mornings, empty stomach. [Armour worked for years and suddenly failed.]) I take no other meds. I am extremely heat intolerant, gaining weight, I have neuropathy, and I am losing all muscle. I can no longer walk. Breathing is scarily laboured. (No asthma) Labs (sugars, lipids, minerals, BUN, etc) are "enviable". MRIs (brain-spine) are clean. Neuro evaluation was normal. No markers for autoimmune disease. I am on a paleo + lean protein diet-- avoiding all chemicals and grains. No sugar, no fungi, no soda, no alcohol. I take premium supplements. (Probiotics, D3-K, calcium, etc. Nothing exotic, no mega-doses.) My endocrinologists, internist, and rheumatologist are stumped. (Our state does not allow naturopaths.) They say that my body is not playing by the rules. What would cause Cortef to fail to uptake? What would block it? Can it be forced to work? Does it need a catalyst or "fuel"? (I eat two egg yolks daily for cholesterol.) Enzymes? Oils? Can this be related to VLCFA? Is this receptor failure? Please document. Answered by Calista Holstein 2 months ago.
I am not looking for a diagnosis. We know exactly what's wrong; I lack ACTH and cortisol. This disease can be called pantotal HPA, HPT axis failure, acute hypocortisolism, panhypothalamus, panhypopituitarism, adrenocorticotropic deficiency, polyendocrine deficiency (PDS), acute hypothalamic syndrome. Take your pick. I want to know about making Cortef work. Answered by Towanda Balazs 2 months ago.
What does cortef(rx) do?
Asked by Armand Janczunski 2 months ago.
GENERIC NAME: hydrocortisone, oral BRAND NAMES: Hydrocortone, Cortef DRUG CLASS AND MECHANISM: Hydrocortisone is a natural corticosteroid produced by the adrenal glands located adjacent to the kidneys. Corticosteroids have potent anti-inflammatory properties, and are used in a wide variety of inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, colitis, asthma, bronchitis, certain skin rashes, and allergic or inflammatory conditions of the nose and eyes. There are numerous preparations of corticosteroids including oral tablets, capsules, liquids, topical creams and gels, inhalers and eye drops, and injectable and intravenous solutions. Hydrocortisone that is prescribed in oral tablet and liquid forms is addressed in this article. Dosage requirements of corticosteroids vary among individuals and the diseases being treated. In general, the lowest possible effective dose is used. Corticosteroids given in multiple doses throughout the day are more effective, but also more toxic, than if the same total dose is given once daily, or every other day.

What is the difference between Solu Cortef and Hydrocortisone?
Thanks that makes alot of sense now to why my hands and feet are more puffy because of too much water in me.
Asked by Leeanna Bartoletti 2 months ago.
Solu-Cortef, is a water soluble, injectable hydro-cortisone. Solu-Cortef is just a brand name. Answered by Andrea Kingham 2 months ago.
I see them slightly different but feel it may almost be semantics. Seems in my Spiritual life the mean the same. Faith is not hope to me, hope is hope. Faith is that I know all is working toward my coming to Remembrance no matter what my Human assessments may be or what it feels like. In my Human relationships, I can have a relationship where my "trust" has been broken, & still ultimately have faith in that person knowing within they are the same as me. Trust very often is a judgment based on past experience, theirs & mine. Faith goes much deeper, it has nothing to do with the intellect but comes from the Wisdom of the Heart. A simple gift given to another, "I have complete faith in you" will very often help to release the bonds of past mistakes. I feel I may not have explained this well, the difference is subtle. But this was a great Q! You had me pondering this for 2 days. Many Blessings! Answered by Dominque Gaddy 2 months ago.

Do cymbalta and cortef show up on drug testing?
Asked by Lyman Alesse 2 months ago.
As far as I know, both shouldn't show up in rug tests. Cymbalta is a med against depression with also good action in treatment of chronic pain. In Cortef, there's a special kind of cortisol. Cortisol is produced by the body itself. Answered by Harris Correia 2 months ago.
